I stayed here for a month with my husband and it was a seamless and stress free experience. Diane was quick to address any minor issues immediately. The property is private and clean with an incredible view of LA. I enjoyed cooking in the full kitchen and having relaxing baths. On site parking and lighting fast internet made it pretty much perfect for our needs.
Diane was very helpful and responsive. Her place is ready to rock and roll as soon as you arrive. The property has a private gate so you feel secure and has a private terrace in the back for your own use. The house is split upper level for another guest and lower for yourself, it is completely separate and isolated so no need to worry about privacy. Parking space is included, washer and dryer. We borrowed her bikes and had a ride around the beach.
The house is a bit tired and could use a bit of TLC, but I wouldnt let this hinder your decision to rent or not as it is perfectly acceptable and we really enjoyed our time there. Kitchen has everything you need.
Not much else to say other than we really enjoyed our stay in Santa Monica and the house is located in a great location.
Thank you very much to Diane for her place. We ( my brother and I) rented it for a month and had a blast. Very well located with cute places/cafes/restaurants just around the corner. Also at the end of the street you'll find a laundromat, very convenient !!
Wifi worked perfectly. As the TV. Kitchen is very easy to work with. We met the owner very briefly but she was very welcoming. Would recommend it to anyone.
Diane is the ultimate host and her apartment was perfect for our introduction into LA. The location of the Hip Beach Apartment is wonderful - just blocks from the beach, shops, cafes, gyms, yoga, pilates, shopping centers and amenities. It's such a vibrant neighborhood that we ended up finding an apartment to live in long-term just a few streets away - we simply couldn't leave! Diane also makes sure that you want for nothing - upon arrival we were met with fresh fruit, chocolates, toiletries and little extras everywhere. You could see that Diane had made an extra effort to ensure that our stay would be comfortable and that we would be at ease. The apartment itself is lovely, comfy beds, new Cable TV, fast internet, good heating, all appliances, great views from the back and a fully-equipped kitchen - honestly, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Diane also helped us with our move to the local area and is still in touch. A fabulous and very-much-appreciated host.
We had a great time in Venice. The house is situated at the top of the only hill in Venice so theres a nice view over the city out the back. Its also far enough away from the crazier side of Venice yet still in walking distance which suited us with two young children. Diane was a great host, if anything need fixing or we need help in any way Diane sorted it out straight away. I would absolutely recommend this place! I wish I was still there.
We really enjoyed our stay at Diane's place in Santa Monica / Venice - the place was extremely comfortable and well located. Diane was a great host who was helpful and accessable. I would have no hesitation recommending Diane to other guests - Thanks Diane!!
It was first time to use AirBnB. I am very lucky to meet Diane who is so nice, kind and exellent. I have many worry to spend my life in foreign country. She know it and could cover every thing.
The house has pritty good location and it takes A-10minutes-walking to beach. You can do BBQ in patio and you have a nice parking and washing machine. There are nice parks nearby it. If I have a oppotunity to stay in west LA, I use it again.

About the Host, Diane
I am a Los Angeles native and I love living by the beach and enjoying all the area has to offer. I also love to travel and enjoy good food and shopping at the local farmer's market.
